Jay-Z Faces Lawsuit Over ‘Big Pimpin’ Sample

You don’t hear to much about Jay-Z in new, but as he already told us, he has 99 problems.
Jay is facing some problem from an Egyptian composer over the rights to a his 2000 hit “Big Pimpin’.”

The nephew of Egyptian composer Baligh Hamdy is close to taking the rapper to court, claiming that he ruined his uncle’s song, “Khosara, Khosara,” and that his family has not been fairly compensated for its use as the lead instrumental motif in the hit.

Not even the man himself, but his nephew? After more than 10 years? Really? C’mon son!!

Osama Ahmed Fahmy, Hamdy’s nephew, is pushing to get a cut of Jay-Z’s revenue for the song prior to the 2007 filing of his lawsuit up until now, including a portion of the emcee’s concert profits.

That shit Crayy!!
